Declaration and Exemption

How do those we disagree with secure power over us?

They declare onerous rules and then exempt everyone, particularly themselves and their associates, from them.  (Can you think of any current examples?)

Why do they do this?

Because in doing so they secure the authority to create the rules… with your acquiescence as demonstrated by your silence.

When they begin making decisions exercising Control over you and you object, they act surprised.  When the time comes to challenge these people, it’s too late.
You have already been marginalized.

Silence is Consent… whether you mean it to be or not.

Unless you confront our leaders whenever they step outside the boundaries set by the U.S. Constitution, you concede your Freedom to them.  You promote your own slavery.  This, of course, requires you knowing what’s in the U.S. Constitution.  You might want to take the five minutes needed to read it.  Then repeat that exercise often.  I do.

By the way, I Declare that I am King of the World.  However, for two years none of you will be effected.

BLITZKRIEG!

(Considering the latest events and discoveries I thought this was worth a revisit.  I have not added everything we know now about Domestic Spying, the IRS etc. Originally posted 1/29/13)

 

Once upon a time the first 100 days of a President’s term were considered an important period to rush the passing of agenda items while there was still momentum…

Clearly the Obama Administration, in coordination with the Democrat controlled Senate and the Residual Leftists in the House, have scrapped the “First 100 Days” approach and substituted it with “Right Here, Right Now!”  Because… 100 days is just too long.

The Socialists have opened the fire hydrant of horrible ideas and are pushing the faces of the American People in front of it “for a drink”.  And, the Republicans have adopted the historic role of the French.  Sadly not one of these Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys can bake a decent loaf of bread.  In other words, those who supposedly support the Constitution of the United States are strangely silent while a major news network airs an editorial offering up the wisdom of getting rid of it in an attempt to make “just” getting rid of the Second Amendment “reasonable”.  This is the Overton Window 101.  (I’m well aware of the “editorial” aspect of the Socialist Professors statement, but allow me to remind you that the script had to be approved, set made available, professor prepped, shot blocked and sound levels checked for the shoot then ultimately the entire segment approved for airing… so don’t tell me about it only being an “editorial” and not reflecting the views of the network.  Can you imagine such an editorial running anywhere 20 years ago?)

The Liberal Establishment is charging Across America with Overwhelming Force.

The new tactic is to Pile every Leftist issue you can into what will be held as an emergency agenda and ANY effort to slow down, discuss or debate ANY aspect of the President’s push will be reported as Obstruction by the same “objective” news networks that want you to consider the “upside” of getting rid of the Constitution altogether… the same Constitution upon which all of our law is based upon…  the same Constitution that is the only thing preserving your Freedom and Liberty, since clearly we have no one government willing to do it.  At some point you have to ask yourself, are we alone?

So… Now we must pass Amnesty, so we can grow the Unions… Tax Increases, just to make it Fair… Print More Money, because we don’t have any… Buy our own Debt, because nobody else will… Pass more Gun Control, so no non-government citizen will have, or will want to have, a gun… Approve the Fairness Doctrine, so we can return to complete Socialist Control over the Media…  Get rid of the Electoral College, making the way for “democratic” mob rule…  Pass a Second Bill of Rights, because the First one is just too limiting… And Applaud every expansion of the roles of those Dependent on Government instead of themselves.

Seriously, I’m drunk most of the time… yet I seem to be able to read the writing on the wall, when it’s not that stupid, poofy, graffiti stuff.  If you think what I’ve outlined above is overwhelming, just wait.  The next couple of months will be unbelievable… which is the strategy.

We are seeing a Liberal Blitzkrieg… it shouldn’t be a surprise since their German Brethren over at the National Socialist Democratic Workers Party were the ones who came up with it in the first place.

Homework… La Gran Mentira, Is Mexico Responsible for Anything? and I Pay Taxes, I Should Get to Vote!


Better than the Alternatives

“Doing Nothing is Unacceptable.” – Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) regarding Immigration Reform Bill

Well… apparently not.

Demonstrably, “living in the shadows” here in the United States is better than the alternatives for those who choose to do it.

“Doing nothing” is exactly the right thing to do until the borders are secure. In other words… Border Security must be sole and separate from any other legislation, and must be accomplished to everyone’s satisfaction prior to initiating possible alternatives for individuals who have chosen to “live in the shadows”.

So, Doing Nothing is quite acceptable, Senator.

Particularly when the alternative requires us to yet again trust the government to perform on the promises they make.  And particularly if “Doing Something” must contain any form of legitimization for those who broke the law in coming here… even when it was the best choice they felt they had.

Where else in the World would this be tolerated?

Mexico?  Switzerland?  Norway?  If you think so, you should check out their immigration policies and get back to us.

So…

First the Tall Fence… not the promise of one.

Then, and only then, the Wide Gate.

Words are cheap, and our politicians continuously remind us of that while hoping we forget.

Right now the folks living in the shadows seem to think it’s pretty OK… or they would vote with their feet and return to their respective countries.


Double Up…

…the number of Border Agents who cannot arrest anybody.  And, if they do, cannot detain or deport them.

Demand a 90% apprehension rate of illegal aliens, a statistic that can never be verified.

Whatever you do, do not build tall fences… and certainly not with wide gates.

Anything, anything, anything but Securing the Borders First.

Why is that the goal?  Why the posturing?

La Gran Mentira.


It’s Always the Right Time…

..to cut Government Workers residing in the Bureaucracy.

The primary issue for the upcoming mid-terms will now be the Corruption of Government.  Rightly so.  But it was going to be “just” the size and scope…

The Democrats were ready for this and are preparing to argue the time is not now to “put hard-working people out of work”.  Particularly during a period of high unemployment and a precarious recovery underway.  (Both of which were supposed to be solved by now through all of our money, as well as money magically created on a printer, being thrown to the wind in the name of the Obama Stimulus.)

The “hard-working people” in this case are Government Employees… who would necessarily lose their jobs when government is reduced in size and scope.

This is one of the reasons I do not believe the scandals at the IRS and DOJ were intended to be discovered.  Not only does it take the focus away from any conjured success the Administration can point to in various areas where government has become obese, it also creates a hostile environment within which to convince voters that every government employee is “hard-working”… at least hard-working in a way we would want them to be.

This will also be the defense used to protect Obama Care.  Should a repeal, or de-funding, movement gain any real traction the Administration will fall back on the number of people who will be put out of work should it happen.  It’s all they will have.

If our candidates genuinely believe what they profess to believe, then it is always the right time to “free the workers enslaved by a government paycheck” and allow them to enjoy life within the private sector.  We will welcome them with open arms.  It could be enlightening for them to join the rest of us in the world we have to live.

We would all stand to benefit because, the private sector is in desperate need of workers willing to do the jobs Unions will not do.

But there lies the rub.

An Insurance policy has been put in place by the Leftists.

The Unions have been working diligently to raise the minimum wage across the country, and in correlation raise the base Union wages.  They have been successful.

By raising the Minimum Wage levels they are pricing entry-level jobs out of existence.  Employers simply cannot afford to hire low-skilled workers and train them.

By raising the Minimum Wage levels, they are making business risk too sever.  Entrepreneurs cannot afford the labor cost to take the risk of starting a new business.

And, by raising Minimum Wage levels the rest of us are finding our dollar only goes half as far as it used to.  Because, those business struggling to keep the doors open have to raise their prices strictly due to the cost of labor.

The Unions are punishing all of us.  And, they are too focused on Socialist ends to care.

The war on economic prosperity is in full swing.  The Progressive Socialists are winning.

It may be time to start thinking in Black and Gray.


It’s Long and Hard…

…to Understand.

I am not a Conspiracy Theorist.  At least not the kind involving dark smoke-filled rooms, with big round tables, and a collection of old robed rich guys with heavy accents sitting around plotting the control of the World.

I believe this movie fodder is ridiculous for a couple of reasons.

First… it requires secrets, and a number of people keeping them.  The simple fact is every time you tell someone your secret it becomes exponentially less likely to remain so.

Second… The old robed rich guys with the heavy accents don’t need the dark rooms.  Secret Cabals just have no reason to exist.  They’ll do whatever they’re going to do right out in the street, in front of God and everybody.

The folks who rise to power have realized through experience that doing things to people who are not interested in having things done to them only requires complexity.  It requires many levels of separation between the person in charge and those who do the doing.  The only other factor needed is a shared ideology to mold the actions of all involved.  That’s it.  (It also helps to control the branch in charge of enforcing the law… but I digress.)

The reason this works is due to the short attention span of the public… and sadly, a Press with an equality short attention span seasoned with a lack of interest.

Let me demonstrate with one of the most fundamental issues that no one will touch… ever…

“Why are Unions interested in raising the Minimum Wage when no Union Member is subject to it?  And why do they expressly send out otherwise unemployable, dirty, non-union, hippies to get me to sign petitions to raise it?”

– Well, the Unions have a base wage which is negotiated in their contracts.  It is the least amount of money their members will work for and is correlated directly to the Minimum Wage through a formula… BLAH, Blah, blah, bla…

See?  I lost your attention.

It doesn’t take too many layers of separation, or complexity, to lose the interest of the typical voter.

This current crop of scandals is demonstrating this for all to see.

These are not conspiracies in the movie sense… but they are certainly conspiracies of the dictionary definition.

But beyond the legality or illegality found in these actions by government, it illustrates a behavior.  It shows us how it’s done.

And, once we understand how it’s done it leads us to a question this Administration really does not want asked.

First, however, let me ask you a question.  Isn’t there an aspect of the IRS scandal that is rattling around in the back of your head unresolved?  An inkling of something being not quite right?  Haven’t you asked yourself why ONLY 60% of Americans believe it to be a huge problem when Government uses it’s power to oppress segments of the population it disagrees with?  Do you wonder why 100% of us don’t see the danger when government changes hands on a regular basis?

It’s that last question I want you to focus on.

If you, like most of us, believe Government is transitory and the benefit of that is transparency albeit delayed at times, you’d only be half right.  And, a number of educated Socialists know this.

It is true, that within specified times, we get to voice our opinion of our representatives and attempt to fire them… but this dynamic does not apply to the bureaucrats.  It does not apply to the government employees… just like the ones who work at the IRS.  (It goes for every Department, but let’s stay focused.)

I am willing to bet that right now, as I pound this out, a primary topic of discussion at the White House is one Lois Lerner.

Why?  Because if someone doesn’t take the fall for the malfeasance at the IRS soon, in order to take the focus away from the scandal, Lois Lerner will become a topic of much discussion in regard to how she can refuse to leave/step down/retire/get lost in the woods/fall off a cannon in Fort Marcy Park.  Which then leads one to the question, “Who’s in charge?” and “Why can’t these people be fired?”.  Once you go there, you enter the world of Unions and Unelected Officials.

Finally, the epiphany occurs when you realize that the bureaucrats/government workers, the “Doers”, NEVER change.  And, if they are all of a specific political persuasion, or subscribe to a single governing ideology… then government is not transitory.  In this case, the bureaucrats/government workers, the “Doers” are Liberal Progressives… and they know they run things no matter who is in office.

This is an “Uh-Oh” moment.  A moment this Liberal Administration does not want occurring on its watch.  Better that this point arise during a Conservative Administration so it can be dismissed as… say it with me… a “Conspiracy Theory”.  Well Done!

I have touched on this previously, and more concisely, in Very Open and Very Public!

To reiterate, we already have term limits for politicians which are called elections.  What we really need is Term Limits for the Bureaucrats/Government Workers.

But alas, without the Press doing their job, to get people to understand this may be Long and Hard.  And, when we are faced with that, we most often get screwed.


“I Don’t Think Targeting is Wrong”

Acting IRS Commissioner Mr. Stephen Miller (Could actually be Eugene Levy,  Geoffrey Rush or their offspring, I’m awaiting verification on this.) , during this mornings hearing regarding the IRS targeting Conservative Groups stated unequivocally that he did not believe targeting was wrong.
Much is being made that this man was a Bush appointee.
Folks… this man is exhibiting the Cultural Mindset which resides within the Government as we know it. It doesn’t matter who appointed him. I don’t care if George Washington himself personally indorsed Mr. Miller. He is an example, just an example, of what is wrong with the IRS.  I’ll leave alone the fact the George Bush, pick one, was not a rock ribbed Constitutional Conservative.
Bear in mind, Mr. Miller is just one of the players in this scandal and he wasn’t in charge during the peak of these targeted investigations of groups based on politics as determined by those in the IRS.
There are many more people involved here. Many, many more.

It is also amazing, and worth paying attention to, how much the IRS and apparently this White House depends on the news media for being alerted to issues which they are a part of. Frankly, it should cause every American to shake their head and wonder if anyone works in Washington D.C., and if so do any of them possess cell phones. The lack of communication and reliance on outside third parties to inform them what is happening within their own departments is astounding.

Please… please pay attention to this. This is Bloated, Over-reaching, Unaccountable and Oppressive Bureaucracy on display.

This attitude permeates all agencies within our Government.

This is not just about the IRS.
